New member introduction

Postby meyatch [OP] » April 11th 2015, 12:31am

Hi!

My name is Mitch. When I was in high school, my parents had a 96(+/-) GMC Safari that they bought new, and it was the best vehicle they ever owned.

It had enormous stickers on the windshield and back windows that said "GMC TRUCK", I thought there were hilarious at the time. Does anyone else have those?

I just talked my dad into buying a 94 Astro. Its a Glaval conversion, and it would have been incredibly nice in 1994.

I've been reading through the forums for the past couple days, and I haven't posted because I didn't have any pictures. I'm up here at dad's house to watch the penguins game now and took a couple.

I'll be the one that ends up fixing some of the problems it has, so I'm gonna start a couple threads in appropriate forums so watch out for those.

thanks for checking it out.

Hi Mitch! Great looking van but you'll hear that a lot here because we're all biased. But that doesn't make it any less true.
Welcome to the site. Looking forward to hearing about your experiences!

Hi,

I am a new member and urgently need to be able to send a PM to two members that suggest they have a method of unlocking my 1998 chevy astro. I have locked the keys inside and have no other way of getting in. My whole life is inside that van so if you can help please do I will be very grateful.

I can send a proof picture of the key sat on the drivers seat.

Many thanks
Will

Auto insurance will often cover the cost of a wrecker service or locksmith doing a "lockout service". If not it only costs something like $35. Wrecker comes to you, slips his "Slim Jim" into the door, opens it in a few seconds. You retreive keys, MAKE COPIES... :poke:
